OK, my 4th grade son is disagreeing with his teacher. His teacher is teaching that humans are mammals, and my son is telling her we are not because we are created in the image of God. What should I tell him to say to her, or what should he do? Is it compromising his beliefs if he agrees? Is there a way that he can agree that we are mammals, but yet still believe the truth about creation? I want him sticking up for his beliefs, but at the same time honoring authority. As a side note, my oldest son, which is in the 8th grade, when he was in the 4th grade, had a teacher that went to our church.. On a test, one of the questions asked, "How did the Appalachian mountains form?" My son answered, "God" His teacher came to church, and said she couldn't count it wrong!!!
